I think I’ve got a vine sub-theme floating around in the back of my aesthetic brain…. This one is helping create a visual border/fence for this front garden, vertically extending the hard-scaping. Without the colorful blooms—or the green of leaves—the ropy silver stems provide the eye graceful confusion.
Vines are somewhat of a visual irregularity in the plant world. For their size, the main trunk you expect isn’t zooming straight (or nearly so) toward the sun….
Are vines rebel herbage?
